Personal Injury Solicitors & Personal Injury Claims


Our Personal Injury Solicitors fight for financial compensation and care-packages required by the injured and the innocent when accidents happen.

We all hope it won’t happen to us, but our Personal Injury Lawyers should be contacted immediately if you or a family member sustain an injury through an accident that was not your fault or if you are suffering from an industrial disease, it’s vital to talk to a Personal Injury Claim expert about your options.

Alternatively, if your spouse, partner or dependent has been injured or died as a result of an injury, you may be entitled to compensation. It’s an incredibly difficult time and while a legal claim might not be at the top of your priority list, we can support you through the process to see you are justly and fully compensated.

The Personal Injury Solicitors at Lanyon Bowdler is regarded as one of the highest performing Injury Claim teams in the Midlands, but more importantly, it’s made up of legal professionals with compassion and integrity. Our award-winning Injury Solicitors (headed by partner - Dawn Humphries) are approachable, friendly and devoted to using their expertise to ensuring the best chances of recovery for injured people an in securing the highest possible injury compensation claims settlements.

We know the areas of loss suffered by victims may not always be spotted by less specialised lawyers, and we work with medical experts, as well as barristers, who are leaders in their field.

With membership of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel, Headway - the brain injury association’s Personal Injury Solicitors List, and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers Corporate Accreditation, we offer highly specialised and experienced teams.

Our team is also included on the Spinal Injuries Association’s (SIA) approved list of personal injury solicitors.
